How did you first encounter Angels in America?

I saw the production at Trinity Repertory Theatre in 1993 while in undergrad at The University of Rhode Island. I became obsessed, bought the scripts and then the films when they where available.

What’s the most challenging production you’ve tackled?

You’re about to see it.

What do you love to do in Seattle?

I love to walk my dog in Seattle parks. I love to eat my husband’s cooking. Most of all, I love to make theatre here.
